Sorry to be a bore!

C variabilis and C cesati are virtually identical in the field and need microscopic examination to tell them apart. It could be C epibryus if about 1.5 cm as it is growing on a herbaceous stem.

Well I am a bore too then but mine is usually about Russula it may be best to just put genus down and the thought of which one in the description section.
